Michael Ballacks red card.....

What I would like to know is, do you think Ballack's tackle was intentional or an accident ??

I mean he clearly made contact and stood on Sissoko's leg, but to be fair he was looking away and it didnt look malicious..........and Sissoko leapt up and complained, and then only went down in pain as the referee brandished the card to Ballack.

I thought it was a definite free kick, but was it deliberate ??

I wonder if Chelsea have any grounds to appeal that decision ?

They won't even bother appealing. Mourinho admitted it was the right decision, Sissoko knocked Ballack to the ground in a tackle and as soon as Ballack got back up all he was looking for was Sissoko, it was deliberate and he deserved to be sent off. Sissoko should have been sent off for a 2nd yellow earlier though.
